Tag Results: Hyatt 48 Lex
As the weather heats up here in New York, we’re all eager to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Since camping isn’t exactly a safe idea in Manhattan (and now that Zuccotti Park is no longer an option), glamping – or glamorous camping – might be your best bet for sleeping under the stars. And now the Hyatt 48 Lex is the most recent hotel to latch onto the glamping trend.
Starting Memorial Day Weekend, when most people will flee the city in favor of Long Island beaches or the Catskills, the boutique hotel is offering intrepid urban campers one of eight terrace accommodations, complete with bedding, pillows, and blankets.
The Suite Glamping Package also comes with books, lanterns, a bottle of wine, a picnic backpack from Dean & Deluca, and a skyline view. And if you get too cold (or the car horns and sirens prohibit you from catching some shut-eye, it rains, or you realize you can’t see the stars because of the bright city lights), your empty suite or penthouse room awaits your return.
The package starts at $509 per night in a Terrace Studio, or $2,500 per night for the penthouse suite.
Make a New Year’s resolution to visit New York City this January to take advantage of post-holiday sales, un-crowded attractions, and great savings on accommodations. Playing off the city’s popular “Restaurant Week” promotions in January and February, eight hotels are offering steeply discounted rates for their own version of “Hotel Week.” Pay just $100/night at The Pod Hotel (queen room), Z NYC Hotel, The Hotel @ Times Square, and nyma, the new york manhattan hotel. Andaz Wall Street and the new Hyatt 48 Lex will run you $200/night, while Gansevoort Park Avenue and Gansevoort Meatpacking are charging $250/night. These rates are bookable January 6-15.
THE VALUE: You’ll save 35-50 percent by booking a January trip with this offer. Rates at The Pod Hotel, for example, would be $159/night during these dates, while Gansevoort Meatpacking could run as high as $475/night in summer. The “Hotel Week” rates are even good on weekends!
THE CATCH: January is typically a slow period for New York, so many of these hotels would otherwise have discounted rates. The city’s “Restaurant Week” doesn’t start until January 16.
THE DETAILS: The following hotels can be booked by phone by mentioning “Hotel Week”: The Pod Hotel (212-355-0300), Z NYC Hotel (212-319-7000), The Hotel @ Times Square (800-567-7720 or 212-790-2710), and nyma, the new york manhattan hotel (800-567-7720 or 212-790-2710). These hotels are bookable online: Andaz Wall Street, Hyatt 48 Lex, Gansevoort Meatpacking and Gansevoort Park Avenue.
